Katrina Black

Katrina’s passion for social justice, driven and informed by her faith, inspired her to become a lawyer. Before law school, she was a humanitarian aid worker with World Vision and a program coordinator for refugee resettlement at Catholic Charities. Realizing she wanted to change structures of injustice, not just keep people alive, she began a path toward progressive lawyering. In law school, she provided legal services to unaccompanied children detained at the border, fought for asylum-seekers in the Harvard Immigration and Refugee Clinic, challenged police misconduct at a civil rights firm, and helped write an international human rights report. She is excited to join the RAICES Austin team, where she will advocate for refugee and immigrant children and families in Texas, integrating immigration legal services with civil rights advocacy.
